Entrepreneurs Club

PURPOSE:
To promote, inculcate and encourage entrepreneurship in the student community. To provide a vision, a path and a bigger picture to the community and ourselves and to be confident enough to think that we can change the world and do it!

DESCRIPTION:
Keeping the tradition of PSG College of Technology alive, the primary mission of Entrepreneurs Club is to inspire, encourage students to take on the challenge of entrepreneurship and to provide the resources, whether through peers, faculty or alumni, for students to succeed in their entrepreneurial ventures. The club also provides a forum to shape young students to face the challenges of entrepreneurship, public leadership, realization & self-actualization of their dream as it is our prime motive.

We focus on urging the students to think out of the box and strongly believe in the concept of “Live the Dream” and also hope to spread this message among the student community to make them realize that there is ‘life beyond job seeking’. It is a firm belief at the Entrepreneurs Club that original thoughts and radical ideas take shape in young minds. If you have the Entrepreneurial spark, we make sure it bursts.

The club was started in 2006 in collaboration with the National Entrepreneurship Network (A part of the Wadhwani Foundation) and under the aegis of PSG Science and Technology Entrepreneurial Park (STEP). We are also home to the Net program under the Young Indians which is a part of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).
The club seeks to instill strong intellectual, leadership and creative qualities in its members by serving as an educational and developmental resource. It also aims to strengthen ties with existing entrepreneurial groups and to provide networking opportunities with successful entrepreneurs. Overall, the Club serves as a resource for students who are interested in learning how to get involved and how to make an impact in the entrepreneurial community.

WHAT WE DO:
The Entrepreneurs Club currently has various student run on-campus startups, where students maintain and run the day-to-day activities of the startups. Apart from this, we conduct regular Entrepreneurship events and workshops to inculcate the spirit of entrepreneurship among students.
